We have a new unified Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

Dear Member,

AOL FINAL WARNING

    Getting to epidemic proportions now - average 5 or 6 a day - fortunately most identified as spam. Check the sender - if it's a private or individual's address it's the phishing e-mail.

    If you've clicked on one in error and signed in, change your password.

    I have been receiving these emails for the past few weeks, I have forwarded many of them to AOL spoof/phishing reporting address and they have confirmed that they are fake.

    I have not and will not respond to any of their links but I have sent replies, (both polite and very abusive to them!) but still the emails keep coming, I have been warned that my email will will be closed down on 22/8 but now it's the 25/8!

    My AOL account was hijacked last week and spam emails were sent to all my contacts.

    Since AOL stopped using their desktop software I have not been able to access my address book so I don't know how they did that.

    They also changed a setting in my AOL account to divert incoming emails to the "recently deleted" folder so I was not immediately aware of all the "bounced" emails for the many obsolete email addresses.

    I don't recall ticking anything from OATH, and have no idea how they accessed my account.

    Luckily my niece sent me a text early that morning to warn me, so I was able to change my password quite quickly.
